Elections Workplace lagging with major vote rely

I had to take a look at the masthead of The Herald not too long ago, simply to test the date and make sure what century we have been in. The outcomes of the current major election have are available in so slowly I needed to marvel.

For instance, Del Rey Oaks has a inhabitants of lower than 1,600, and there was an essential vote on Proposition B, to find out the destiny of the town’s portion of the Fort Ord Regional Path and Greenway (FORTAG). Quite a lot of residents on each side put in an excessive amount of marketing campaign work and deserved to know the outcomes as quickly as potential.

On major night time, the elections workplace confirmed 37.75% of the votes in Del Rey Oaks had been counted (even much less in different races), and the vote was shut.

As I write this on Friday afternoon, the outcomes proceed to point out 37.75% of the votes had been counted, unchanged since Tuesday (the opposite races too). That’s inexcusable. There must be a greater and faster methodology of counting votes, and Monterey County ought to look into it.

Handcarts in Marina will deliver in additional site visitors

What’s it that spurs Marina and our tourist-burdened cities to deliver extra vacationers to the Peninsula? Bringing handcarts to our pristine Fort Ord Dunes State Park would require parking heaps, loos, handicap provisions and food and drinks. Extra congestion will choke Freeway 1.

Apparently Mayor Delgado doesn’t drive Freeway 1 south within the morning or north within the late afternoon. God forbid an emergency automobile would wish entry in that gridlock. This rail line is as pointless because the zip line proposed for Jacks Peak Park years in the past. When does it cease?

Grateful for info about gun violence, automotive deaths

I’d wish to thank Dr. Roberts for her nice analysis into the info about deaths by automotive accidents and by firearms.

I learn the letter by Robert McGregor I used to be skeptical and inquisitive about his claims.

I did a fast search on-line and got here to the identical conclusion as Dr. Roberts did, nevertheless, to not the identical depth. I contemplated about writing to refute his misstatements however Dr. Roberts did a a lot better job in comparison with my three traces I might have written.

John Birch Society had some good, some dangerous concepts

The John Birchers had some foolish concepts, just like the fantasy that President Eisenhower was a prepared and aware agent of the worldwide Communist conspiracy. However they’d good concepts, too. We should always assist our native police. We should always get the US out of the UN, and the UN out of the US. And we must always have impeached Chief Justice Warren.

I simply had a thought: For the reason that Democrats have been prepared to question Donald Trump even after he left workplace, couldn’t we nonetheless impeach Earl Warren although he has left this life?

Republicans will win this fall as a consequence of complacency

Low voter turnout is a symptom of stagnation. One other symptom of cultural stagnation are the 1000’s who reap the benefits of “social welfare” applications, not as a security internet however as a lifestyle. Dependency breeds complacency.

One other symptom is the forgiveness of pupil loans, which devalues each the particular person and the worth of an schooling. It’s like free cash, which discourages the respect for work and the need for self-advancement.

Abortion on demand for any motive, even up till delivery undermines respect for self, respect for all times, to not point out it leads to inhabitants stagnation.

Again to low voter turnout, why trouble to vote? I’m a Democrat. You’re a Democrat. Most the individuals working for workplace are Democrats. Hey! There’s a voting field in each library, put up workplace and civic middle. Voting polls are in all places however these locations have been empty on June 7.

That’s why Republicans are prone to win within the November elections. Republicans usually tend to vote and fewer of them have the social illness referred to as Complacency.
